yes Jules, if you want to make another post-3R slam run, now is the time.

| Wins over 3+ of the Top 4. Players to reach all slam QFs+ in history. Hawkeye/Line Calls. QFs+ at Slams & Masters, but never Top 20.
Haas / The Fog / Tsonga / Brown / Mahut / Dolgo / Fed / Baker / Alund / Tursunov / Copil / Bolelli / Brands / Benneteau / Gojowczyk / Steps / PHM
Rafter / Edberg / Henman / Stich / Safin / Gambill / Grosjean / Malisse / Gonzo / Llodra / Santoro / Agassi / Schalken / Nováček / Rosewall / H-T Lee / Kuerten / Boetsch / Pavel / Sundström / Björkman / Scud / El Aynaoui / Arazi / Calleri / Sampras / Nalbandian / Mosquito / Srichaphan

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned....

I was meaning to catch this one, but couldn't stay up. Who taped their eyelids open and was glued to the screen for the duration? I'm keen to guess at Benneteau's chances if he makes it to the third round to battle Tipsy.

Those commentators must know something. Not much use being a horse on a tennis court. Now if they held a horse race in Melbourne....

I disagree...if u want to be top player and champion you need to learn to beat opponents like this.

Maybe he is thinking that as long as his other head is in the right spot,it cant be too bad.

Frankly, I don't trust Novak fans too much after that yoda multi Tutsi dishonoured my bet and chico tried to cheat claybot but I trust you'll keep your word. This thread has run its course then. Good.

Re: Ao R1:J.Benneteau straight-setted G.Dimitrov 6-4 6-2 6-4

benneteau is a very underrated player, and his game is really entertaining

i personally saw it 50-50 (the fact someone is young and expected to be very relevant in the future doesn't mean he's suddenly a better and ripe enough player *right now*), the only thing that surprises me was how easily this match went... not even a tie-break, let alone a set for dimi...

at least he probably bangs sharapova, unlike benne

Maybe so, but on the other hand he probably banged Serena, unlike Benneteau. Advantage Benneteau.

Suicide Tennis (5): Wimbledon 2014, World Tour Finals 2015, Madrid 2015, Kuala Lumpur 2014 and Metz 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 WTF, 1 Masters 1000, 2 ATP 250; 2 finals lost

Fill-in-the-Draw (3): US Open 2014, Rotterdam 2013 and Geneva 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 ATP 500 and 1 ATP 250

Tennis Tipping (3): Veneza and Todi 2014 (with vn01), Knoxville 2015 (with Redkop) - 3 challengers; 7 finals lost
